Any of this sound familiar to you?
“Former Republican state party co-chair Gopal Krishna of West Des Moines is feuding with state party chair Kayne Robinson. It's one of those deals over who is in charge and whether the party is being run properly.”
“This sort of internecine warfare has become a routine sideshow on the Republican State Central Committee. It seems there's always some plot bubbling somewhere. It would be funny if it weren't so serious.”
“They consistently fail to execute a decent Election Day get-out-the-vote effort around Iowa. Democrats are doing a better job turning out their base vote.
Privately, many Republicans agree and say fixing that problem is the No. 1 task facing the central committee.”
All from Yepsen’s column in the Des Moines Register on May 13, 2000
“The central committee is charged with getting out a base Republican vote in each election. In recent years, it's been failing. Instead, the committee enjoys infighting.”
From Yepsen’s May 1, 2000 Column in the Register
Is Gopal the change we need, or just more of the same crap that has made Iowa Republicans a minority party in Iowa? Since we know there is a slate that was presented to some members of the SCC, I want to hear why this is our best option.
More to follow.
